HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES

MC: Blake "Fox Heart" Morgan of Mississippi would like to announce his retirement and subsequent induction into the IWA Hall of Fame. His final stats were 2,075 wins, 890 losses, 29 draws, and $2,934,100 in imaginary earnings. His career began way back in December of 2003, in the Gold Federation's Young Lions League, and it ends in the Classic Wrestling League. He started the Morgan Crew (MC) in the Chicago Legends League at the end of 2006 and became a leader of the group. He felt that he was destined to become the IWA World Champion -- but in the end, instead of getting the gold around his waist, he will receive a plaque for all the obstacles that he's overcome. He based his career on all three of his idols: Bret "Hitman" Hart, Chris Jericho, and the late, great Owen Hart!

Also retiring this cycle is TBZ: Silver Badger (1,047-413-73, $2,170,200 *12). This 4-time IIL Universal Champion and 11-time Continental Champion also won many regionals in-league, and was edged for the U.S. title in the Summer cycle of 2006. His manager, Brick D. Hinkley of Canada, will receive an engraved plaque for doing such an outstanding job!

 

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

Energizer Bunny, drawn by Cody SchibiTony Pesante of New York gets to choose either 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches, since he coached (: Energizer Bunny (DAL) to victory over all our other league champions last cycle! He had a strategy worth 499 points.

 

U.S. CHAMPION

This engraved plaque (or 25 free matches) was awarded to Tony Pesante of New York, who armed (: Beautiful Barrack Obama (HWL) with a winning 499-point strategy. Nice going!

 

KING OF THE RING

Manager Nathan Fann of Tennessee guided RWS/AMP: Rowdy "FTW" Lee (CLL) to this crown, and earned an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for himself! Rowdy had the most points when we added the values of hold positions 1, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, and 15 in every league battle royal winner's strategy. 4REICH: Dead Celebrity Status (RYL), 4REICH: Nazi Low Rider #2 (HWL), and NGAA: Hawkeye Science (NGL) also had 272 points, but lost to Rowdy's 499 overall total when point flow came into play. Hold positions 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 14 were used for the regular battle royals.

 

AMERICAN CHAMPION

These 10 free matches went to Michael Cook of Kentucky, who formulated an unbeatable 499-point strategy for his wrestler, CGI/OSL: Graham "Cracker" Johnson (OSL)!

 

ASIATIC CHAMPION

After defeating our other Asiatic league champions last cycle, CTI/LEGIT: Lucky Cassidy quickly grabbed a can from his manager at ringside and spray painted a big, white St. Andrew's Cross over the title belt, proclaiming himself "the first-ever IWA Scottish Champion." The capacity crowd erupted, and both he and his manager had to be escorted to the locker room by arena security. Further details on this developing story will appear in your NBL bulletin as they become available.

 

HARDCORE CHAMPION

RWS: Drake Douglas (DDL) added $25,000 to his imaginary bank account when his 499 total won him this title. His manager, Michael Drake of New York, gets 10 free matches!

 

METROPOLITAN CHAMPION

"The first-ever IWA Scottish Champion" CTI/LEGIT: Lucky Cassidy won this coveted title for Joseph Cassidy of Scotland. The NBL was also home to this title winner back in the August cycle, so "The Loose Cannon" receives fifteen free matches instead of ten!

 

CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION

A1C Brian Johnson of the United States Air Force watched proudly from ringside as RFN: The Fallen (FLL) claimed this $25,000 title -- with a little help from his Inverted Crucifix Slam. For providing the 499-point strategy, Brian will receive 10 free matches!

 

FEDERATION PLAY-OFFS

Tony Pesante took home the Iron Federation title, thanks to (: The God of Destruction (MIL). Also with 499 points and managed by Tony was eventual World Heavyweight Champion Energizer Bunny, whose journey began at the Gold Federation contest. PAIN: Marty the Butcher (DIL) won the $40,000 Steel Federation purse by point flow over CGI/OSL: Graham "Cracker" Johnson (OSL), LOVE/PAIN: The Compulsive Scrub Pounder (CCL), and RFN: The Fallen (FLL). His manager, James Dermott, earned 25 free matches! Marty had a 499-pointer, and so did Diamond Federation winner RWS: Drake Douglas (DDL), whose contract is owned by Michael Drake. ACE: Pat Patterson's Ring Boy (BWL) kept the Bronze Federation strap in Howie Sandberg's possession. Howie also picked up the Jade honors, using ACE: "Wedding Crasher" Jeremy Grey (JRL), which means that all six of our federation titles are currently held by New Yorkers!

 

NATIONAL CHAMPION, IWA-WIDE REGIONALS

NME: "Living Legend" Larry Zbysko (WWL) used his 500-point strategy to win the Dixie region, then turned back all comers to claim the National title's engraved plaque or 25 free matches for manager Tim Zaegel of Virginia. Tim also took the Central title with NME: "The Enforcer" Arn Anderson (WWL). He had 499 points, as did Tim's NME/NSL: Blackjack Barry Gamble (OSL), who conquered the Northern region. NME: "The American Dream" Joey Lance (OTL) picked up the Prairie honors for "Mad Dog," and Tim's NME: "Ton Pere" Romeo DaVinci (OTL) won the Southern title by point flow over AHL: Finz the Shark (DIL) and TG: "Z-Man" Tom Zink (MRL)! The rest of the $20,000 prizes went to...

managed by Billy Belote of Maryland; edged out NME: "151 Proof" A.Z. Bacardi (NBL), both with 499 points

led to a win over POP/666: Conan Caracas (MRL) by "The Mountie"

 

LADIES' TITLES

Raesta "Fire Scorpion" Guerrera (VVL) successfully defended her World Championship against all contenders, and in so doing added another $40,000 to her career winnings! Another engraved plaque or 15 free matches will be awarded to her very talented manager, Paul C. Low of Maryland (the C must stand for "Consistency"). Raesta's tag-team partner, "The Ugandan Goddess" Kamalana (VVL), ended up taking her Queen of the Ring title, but manager Ryan Oskar of Ohio told IWA reporters that there were no hard feelings. "The Slasher" Angela Baker (VVL) won the Ladies' U.S. honors with a 499-pointer. Also managed by Anthony Dudick of New York are reigning U.S. Six-woman champions 4REICH: "The Engineer Hunter" Eihi Shiina, "The Machine Girl" Minase Yashiro, and Michelle "The Invisible Woman" Yeoh (MDL)! The Ladies' National title went to WWW: Sable Blaze (FFL), who wrestles for TSgt. Luke Fletcher of the United States Air Force. She had a 499 total. Though they missed winning the Ladies' tag straps by point flow last time, CTI: Lady Sugar and Lady Spice (VVL) gave it another shot, and their persistence paid off for manager Scott Bernes of Ohio! NME: Carol the Bar Maid and Tipsy Tammy Stevens (VVL) scored U.S. tag gold for Chad LaBombard of Michigan, who then added Drunk Debbie Stevens to the team and helped the trio secure the World Six-woman championships. ACE: "Fatale" Dawn Destiny, "Ms. Inferno" Brook Blaze, and "The Ice Princess" Alexandria Snow (MDL) were edged out for the titles -- just like last time!
